David Knight - 14th Sept 2017

Loyle Carner reunites with Joao Retorta for the video for Sun of Jean (released the day of the Mercury Awards 2017, where Carner is nominated for his debut album Yesterday's Gone)

This is a nostalgic, honest and delicate depiction of unconditional love between mothers and their sons, exquisitely executed by Retorta.
